School Lunches


It is our intent that every student has the opportunity to eat lunch during the school day. We do, however, need your help getting your students set up to purchase lunch.


Students who attend south campus full day and who plan to eat the school lunch must have an EZ-Pay account to purchase lunch. 


Please take a look at this document for quick instructions about how to set up an account. It should take five minutes or less to set up.

Students who attend north campus full day and purchase lunches may continue to pay with cash, check, or through the EZ-Pay system.


Thank you for your patience as we work through these new processes.

Delaware City Schools Host Rachel's Challenge 

When: Thursday, August 21st, 6:30pm
Where: Dempsey Middle School
Willis and Dempsey Schools will host Rachel's Challenge with student sessions during the school day and a parent/community event in the evening. The program is based on the life and writings of Rachel Scott, the first student killed in the Columbine H.S. shooting in 1999.

Rachel had a goal to start a chain reaction of kindness within her school and community. The program is an extension on the Power of One programs already in place at Willis and Dempsey. We are very excited to be able to bring this powerful message to students, parents and community members.

Please see this flyer and this letter, both of which will provide more information about the event.
